|Let the memory of Brandon be with us forever|
"Wow man, I can't believe it's been almost a month already that you're gone. Makes me sad. RIP bud...love you."
"Hey Precious. You have been on my mind all morning. Your heart ached when you died and now my heart aches. How will we all get through the holidays without your smile, laughter, clowning around? I hung a soccer ball ornament on my tree for you. I love you Brandon. Sleep peacefully, he can no longer hurt you."
"Josh & I cried off on all day today driving around Ft. Lauderdale thinking of that weekend we had in Wilton Manors. Gosh B, why did you leave us? We miss you so much. Love you"
"Dude, it kills me to know you died over some stupid punk with no heart and soul. I'm so sorry this happened to you buddy. I love you like a brother. NKA will NEVER forget you bro. RIP"
"Listening to Robert Miles "Children" right now and thinking of you. So artistic, gripping, emotional. Make me think of my old buddy Brando. Gosh I miss you dude. RIP."
"Not a day goes by that you are not on my mind, and you are always in my heart. RIP sweet boy."
"Boo, my heart just breaks everytime I think of you. I'm so sorry you died over a cold hearted, insensitive bastard that didn't care about you or your feelings. Ruthless the through your gift way in the trash. What an evil and cruel person. I miss you! :("
"My condolences to your family suffering an unimaginable loss. Sleep peacefully and may God bless you."
"The boat parade is going to blow without you. It was a tradition with both our families. This sucks bro in the worst way. I miss you. RIP"
"You were one heck of a soccer player and an even better friend. When my mom died you were a lifesaver. I hope you know how much I love and appreciated you then and always. RIP buddy."
"I still can't believe you're gone B. You were on my mind last night and this morning. How? Why? I wish I could put my arms around you, kiss you and tell you it's going to be okay. I love and miss you."
"I struggle to try and wake up from a nightmare only to realize it's not a nightmare. I miss you bro more than you know. WTF happened to you? What did this frat punk do to you that made you give up? I will kick his ass if only you could tell me where to find him. RIP my boy."
"Dad, mom and myself put up the tree tonight. We struggle to find some sense of everday life without you and JT. The holidays will not be the same without you. Miss you baby brother. Love, your biggest brother."
"You and your family are in our hearts and prayers this holiday season. God Bless. RIP"
"I never told you, the night were drunk, crying and told me you wanted so badly to have a beautiful baby boy soccer player with Mark someday and you wanted him to have Mark's pretty blond hair and that the two of you would be proud soccer dads I was so jealous. No guy has ever said anything as sweet about me. I miss you so much. I love you boo. :("
"Wherever you are, I hope you realize what a whole your death has left in mine and many lives bro. You were so loved by so many people. I only wish you could've found your way out of the pain to see that. God forgive me, but I hate that guy for his cruelty toward you. I love you man. RIP buddy. NKA always."
"Sweet Brandon, my heart breaks for you and your family during what should be a joyous holiday season. May God keep your family shrouded in his grace and love during this painful time."
"I remember trying to teach you how to snowboard in college. You fell face first in the snow and when you got up, you looked like the Abominable Snowman with snow all over your face. You Floridians are such amateurs. I will always keep that memory of you safe in my heart bro. I love you forever my fellow Pike. Sleep in peace, you are safe now."
"Life without you in it? How do I do this Brando? You left this world with a broken heart and now so many hearts are broken because you are gone. This holiday season isn't even meaningful to me. I love you sweet boy, RIP."
"I'm listening to "Time" by Alan Parson Project and the lyrics are so fitting, they remind me of you. Sleep in peace my sweet Brandon. I love you like no other and no one will ever take your place in my heart."
"This was one of your favorite mantras and it applies now. I only wish this Mark guy would've lived by your mantra. RIP sweet Brandon. We miss you like no other.
I shall only pass this way but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to another human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow;
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the quick uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die."
"I still can't believe you are gone. What happened to you my friend? Why oh why did you feel the need to leave me? Do you remember once you said to me, "Dude, forward momentum." Why didn't you practice what you preached? I love you dude, you broke me as a man. RIP Brando."
"Boo, I opened my closet tonight and found your hoodie you left at my place last time you were here. I grabbed it, pulled it close and sank to the ground in tears. I miss you so much. I love you always. :("
"I just heard about you death a few days ago and I have been bummed every since. You were a killer on the field and I always thought you'd go pro B. My girfriend and I are so sad. Heaven just got another angel for sure. We love you man. RIP bro."
"My darling son, from the moment they put you in my arms the day you were born, you were my heart. Now, my heart is forever broken and I haven't a clue how to live without you. We didn't have Thanksgiving, but I did make your fav dish, cranberry with walnuts and Dad, myself, Chad and Chrissy forced ourselves to eat it in your honor. I love you my precious son until I take my last breath. Mom"
"Today sucked so bad. You always called me on Thanksgiving and wished me a happy turkey day. Today you did not and I cried off and on all day. I miss you more than you know. Why did you leave me? What spell did this Mark have on you? I wanna tell him off so bad. This is so unfair. I love you for eternity Brandon. :("
"B-Dawg, you've been heavy on my heart all day. My turkey tasted so bland. Yesterday, we buried you and now I have to figure out how to live without you in my life. I was very touched they buried you with your fav pair of soccer cleats. I made me weep. RIP bro and know I will never forget my boy. I love you B."
"Hey B, I'm getting ready for your funeral this morning. I've been crying and I have no idea how I'm going to get through this today. I love you so very much precious. This is surreal, burying you the day before Thanksgiving."
"I cannot believe it was one year ago tonight I drove you to the airport in the snow and we had beers at the airport bar while your flight was delayed. If I had known a year later you'd be gone, I would've held you tightly in my arms and told you affected my life. I love you man and always. RIP my brotha from anotha motha."
"Who am I going to speak french with now? You were the only person besides myself that actually spoke fluent French. Gosh I will miss our conversations and your soothing, smooth voice. Je vous aimerai pour le reste de ma vie. RIP my friend"
"Brandon, my precious. Happy Thanksgiving sweet boy. I will have an extra helping of turkey for you. I love you so much it hurts."
"Brando, I'm still taking our planned trip to the Grand Canyon. You told me pictures don't capture its beauty and peace. I will stand on the rim, shout your name and say a prayer for you bro. I never had the chance to tell you, you were my hero. You had the courage to be who you were with dignity, integrity and honesty. I love you man. NKA forever brotha! RIP"
"I don't want to go to class this morning. I know I'm going to look over, see your seat and cry. Your smile helped get me through my morning. I still can't believe this is real. I hope you're not suffering anymore and you're at peace. I love you B."
"NOOOOOOOOO! Not my Brando! I'm heartsick and all I do is cry nonstop since I heard you're gone. I hate that guy for being so mean and cruel to you. Who is gonna watch Scream 4 with me now? We had plans you know, I scream and cover my eyes and you hold me in your arms and keep me safe. :("
"I keep thinking of our weekend together in Ft. Lauderdale. You, me, driving in my jeep on A1A laughing and when you mooned that car full of girls. I'd give anything to have that night back with you. I watched you sleep that night, never told you that. You looked so peaceful and beautiful, just like an angel. I wish I could watch you sleep one more night, but now the angels can. I LOVE YOU Brandon."
"This completely blows. You had the best musical taste dude. You turned me on to some good stuff and I will always remember when I'd hangout at the radio station with you...good memories for sure. I don't cry much, but you've made me cry B. Love you man. RIP buddy."
"Snoop Brandy Bran, you always laughed when I called you that. My heart breaks for you and your family. I wish this was nothing but a bad dream. I can't comprehend in my mind that you're gone. I cry, toss and turn, pray for it to all be a horrible nightmare. I love you and will never forget you. RIP"
"Because of you, I will be playing soccer in my freshman year of college next year. You spent hours of your time working with me, making me a better player and helping me acheive my dream of playing college soccer. Thank you so much dude. I'm sad you won't be able to see my play my first college game. RIP Brandon you're the best."
"Brandy Bran, you were a friend, brother and person of integrity. Our frat parties in college were off the chain bro and you made them wicked fun. I was really hoping to see you next month with some of the guys for the get together in Vegas. We will have your fav, Grey Goose and honor your life with a toast. NKA forever bro. RIP"
"Brando I remember a little guy who could thunder down the field, score a goal and turn to the bleachers and smile proudly. I never told you this, but I wished I could've gotten my own son to focus as much you did during play. You were an inspiration to all that played with and against you. RIP sweet boy."
"B-man, dude what happened? You were always such a happy, lucky go, upbeat guy. What did this punk do to you? B, playing alongside you on the field was an honor and for that I am truly thankful. You really helped me perfect my dribble. RIP buddy you will missed beyond belief."
"I remember a little boy who would cry when he saw road kill. You had the most tender heart nephew. Uncle Chris, Gabbie, Tate and I are heartbroken over the loss of you and JT. The holidays this year will be painful to say the least. Your smile, laughter and giving heart will be missed. We love you nephew."
"When I found out you were in Calgary alone I should've gotten my ass on the next plane to Calgary. I will never forgive myself for leaving you in that hotel room alone Brandy Bran. I cry and cry over the loss of you. Far to soon and far to young. You had your whole life ahead of you. I wish you could've seen that. I will miss your wicked sense of humor in happier days. RIP my friend. Miss you."
"Baby brother of mine what now? How could this have happened? In two months time I've lost both my baby brothers. You always said I wished I was only child and you were so wrong. My heart is half dead forever now that you and JT are gone. Please take care of each other and don't worry, I will take care of mom & dad. Love always, your big brother."
"Dude, I remember you holding my head over the toilet many nights at the frat house as I puked my guts up. You always made sure I got home safe and sound. You were the best brother in the house, always there when I needed you. My bad bro for not being there in your time of need. You got a raw deal buddy. RIP brother. NKA loves you always."
"Boo, now my heart is broken. You were a light in my life for sure. I cried on your shoulder when my boyfriend dumped me and you held me close in your strong arms. You always smelled so good. I'm so sorry I wasn't there for you to cry on my shoulder in your time of need. You're safe now, there are no more tears in heaven. I love you Boo. :("
""Sweet, adorable, precious Brandon, I'm still in shock. How will I go on without you? I shall never forget your hugs, you gave the best hugs and your famous line, "S'all good." I'm sorry you died with a broken heart cousin of mine. Whoever that Mark guy was, he would've been lucky to have you heart, for it was tender, pure and genuine. Sleep with the angels we all love you forever."
